"Today, I was reading all the weird American laws on MLIA and I decided to look up some Canadian ones. In British Columbia, it is illegal to kill a sasquatch. This is a completely legit law."

Someone write a story in which an enraged Canada informs America he will not hunt down a Sasquatch while in Canadian territory because it is illegal.
lol....I was reading some Canada x America and it was getting kinda hot, America all seme and then...Hail to the Chief came on shuffle and I cracked up. Pretty hardcore.

Just thought I'd share.

This is what I drew in relation to this post:

(Fake cut?)

lol Alfred! Don't be so touchy about the taxes, mmkay? Oh. And don't ask me what type of car that is. THEY'RE ALL GIGANTIC HUNKS OF METAL TO ME!!!!!!!~

As a Hetalia fan...I just...

"The ongoing refusal of the US embassy in Grosvenor Square to pay the London congestion charge has also been a minor source of controversy.[223] Embassy officials claimed they did not have to pay the congestion charge because it was a tax, from which diplomats were exempt. London officials asserted that the congestion charge was no different from the toll charges paid by drivers to travel into US cities such as Manhattan via bridges and roads."

WIkipedia article describing America and UK's "special relationship." That line made me crack up though.

I just have this image of Alfred craning his head out of a car window outside of a toll booth and yelling, "GOD DAMMIT ARTHUR! I already told you I'm not paying your fucking TAXES!"I even drew a picture. It sucks. Maybe I can put it up for the lols?later.

"Present British policy is that the relationship with the United States remains the United Kingdom's 'most important bilateral relationship'.[229]"

Chyeah. UK x US ftw.

And yet I've been so severely unaware of it up to now. I think I get it now why Korea was in such an uproar. All of this is really terrifying to me. This video has over 6,000 comments. It's really strange as an American to watch these comments fly back and forth...
youtuuuuube linkCollapse )

It's all about these Korean snacks that look exactly like the Japanese snacks. I've even had one of those snacks. The yellow box with the mushrooms on it? Yeah, I've had those. The similarity was shocking.

What really scared me about the comments was when one on the Korean side brought up the relationship between America and Japan and I nearly threw up.

"Hypnotized by the folly logic of the West, Japs still believe their GDP is such & such, Nobel Kids Prize are dozen plus somethin',, shame on you idiots, you go by Yanky standard?, You worshiped & kissed their Ass , now all your masters are gone broke, you will be the next in a quick like ligthtening collapse in a few weeks , $ can not sustain, USA is delaying it's Total Demolition as a nation (not a mear collapse), Japan (with 250%GDPdebt) will be demolished, in bloody mayhem riots & civil war"

It was terrifying to read this. I don't know whether this person was talking from the view of North or South...I'm assuming North? But...I don't know. I'm seriously shaking...That was awful. Obviously, these kinds of comments (hopefully) do not represent all Korean's perspective, that would be absolutely ridiculous to assume such a thing but...Yeah.

It feels as if I've seen some sort of microcosm of war. On these culture shock sites I used to visit about Japan, when I was trying my best to find the ugliest things about my favorite place in the world besides America, I remember inklings of them mentioning that Japan was like 99% Japanese, and anyone who held Korean blood could be told apart and they suffered vicious racism.

...If it weren't for this comment I read on another video from a Korean girl who said her best friend was Japanese, I...*shakes head*

Really though. That was really scary. Racism...things like this...they really scare me a lot. Why can't we be friends?

(btw, yes, it has totally become a hobby of mine to look up controversial videos and read the comments...idk why and there's always like this one person who goes comment crazy on the vid, and I'm surprised the vid poster doesn't disable comments XD It's weird though. I feel like, by looking at this versus a news website or reading what politicians have to say, I am looking at an actual slice of humanity. Go look up Michelle Obama touching the Queen or any other remotely controversial thing there...slice of life there XD)

(lol an atheist writes a bible story)

 

Despite legend, leaving the Garden of Eden was not something Adam and Eve did right away. For who would give up on paradise so fast, even if God was there to guard it with a flaming sword? But it was Eve who hurt the most from this parting and it was she who returned most often.

            God did not speak to her when she went. She pleaded and begged to be allowed to return. She laid herself on the ground before the gates of Eden and sobbed. She didn’t understand how this could all be her fault, she didn’t understand the extent of her power. If she was merely the rib of Adam as he told her she was, then why would her actions matter so much? That is what she had believed when she took the fruit in her hand.

            Now she knew better. How she wanted to go back. “Please God! Please let us return!” She choked on her tears, shoulders shaking. But she was only answered by silence. She fell asleep at the gate, and woke up in the cold dark. The sword remained there, flickering and she felt the heat from it and scooted closer to keep warm. She was so close. Why couldn’t she just go in? Eve stood, looking around the blue sands of the desert. She saw the dried out remains of a tree, and quickly walked over. Surely if she had been the one to cause their leaving, she could cause their return as well?

            Quickly, the first woman picked up the branch and approached the gates of paradise. She tightened her grip on the wood, and swung forward against the flaming sword. It shook with her might, but the flame ate away at the branch all the way to her fingertips. They sizzled and she let go instinctively, staring at the wounds. “Why God, why?!” Eve sobbed. She knew why, but…Being unable to make up for her mistakes was killing her. Her sobs changed in pitch, and she stared up at the gates. Slowly her sobs quieted and Eve felt as if a great presence hovered over her.

            She could hear Adam approaching in the distance, the soft shift of sand under his feet. The beat seemed to shake through her bones as this presence hovered over her. So she spoke gently to God, expressing how much she missed Him and regretted her decision. But her voice felt different, it didn’t feel like talking at all. Eve was the first human being to sing. And she felt God around her, holding her, embracing her. Perhaps this was the only way He could approach her, seeing as He was supposed to be teaching her a lesson, one which she felt distinctly. But how could He leave His beloved creations?

            Her voice was aimless, having never sung before and when Adam came up behind her, he joined in, sitting beside her on the sand. He felt God too. From that time on, whenever they sang, they could feel paradise. They sang together every day.

 


(Whatchya think? I can't make short stories U_U; so I ripped off the bible and made up something, lol such a blasphemer. OH and capitalizing in the middle of a sentence was bizarre XD)
